Spiral Goat

Today I met up with my cousin Will and we walked into Sneachda with an open mind. There were teams everywhere and bizarrely three teams on Spiral Gully trying to work round each other with other routes empty. Anyway we wandered up and climbed Goat Track Gully which is normally grade II but had a grade III ice pitch in it today which was nice. We then headed down the Goat Track and seeing Spiral Gully was now free we jumped on that and shot up that quickly before walking out via 1141. All the big gully routes are in good condition with some steep sections adding extra spice. The wind was picking up during the day and is still moving snow around.
